  1. Please don't forget lower Sukhumvit Road.
  2. So the takeaway here is I can fast track at the airport once we have a disaster killing dozen of American? Thank you Thailand!
  3. I normally travel in the late afternoon (6:00PM) from Sapan Thaksin to Asoke. The Silom line is working again but the Sukhumvit line is overcrowded and dangerous. The corrupt operator is to blame, not the great employees trying to do a job with broken trains, unsafe conditions and no support from staff. I think the managers should take a ride on the BTS during peak traffic instead of their limousine.
  4. Is there an official donation site or bank account for Officer Sam?
  5. Define luxury condo. Looks like a shoebox on a lower floor.
  6. From my experience the Thai Police could be more efficient and productive by following up on their meager successes. Lower Sukhumvit Road, especially the odd number sois between 1 and Asoke are crawling with foreigners that can be observed to be dealing drugs, human trafficking and con men ready to take any victims money. The police should do more video surveillance, immigration checks on the loiterers and everyone detained automatically has their residence searched for evidence of criminal activity and associate criminals. Stop the raids for the press that are embarrassing the police in general and do the work. In no reality in this universe are these raids a deterrent to the criminals involved.

  7. Well they tried seeding the air with more chemicals. What else can they do? The long term effects of air pollution are known the only thing not know is the death rate in Thailand due to pollution. Crippling illness can also be measured by developed countries. We have grown to expect coverups and blue sky (no pun intended) happy numbers from the government. However, you have to be blind not to see deadly pollution right in front of our faces. This is a dictatorship. Dictate. Remover older vehicles from the road, restrict burning and begin to monitor factories for death contributions.

    More Wi-Fi hotspots for Phuket as plan to tag tourists mulled

    I kid you not. I accidentally found out where this idea comes from. Playing now on True Visions: Robot Overlords (2014) “Alien robots come to Earth and assert their control over humanity. They claim that they only want to observe humanity. They enforce a strict no one allowed outside rule. They implant humans with a device that alerts sentries to anyone who goes outside and if they refuse to comply they are destroyed.”
  9. Finally some good news. That’s why it’s called the Dreamliner. No kids and fat people
